AMAZON'S BEST KEPT SECRET: HALE DENIM
I hope you guys are as excited about HALE denim on Amazon as I am, otherwise I probably just sound like a crazy person because I keep talking about it like it's the greatest thing ever, which I think it is! I don't know how this secret has evaded me for so long, but Adriano Goldschmied, the world renowned Italian designer behind AG Jeans (you can shop them here), is designing jeans for Amazon, at the price point that we have all come to know and love from Amazon's brands.
If you clicked the link to the AG page at Nordstrom, you would now know that unless they're on sale, it's hard to get a pair of his jeans for under $200. $200!!!! They're amazing jeans and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for designer denim (I didn't see a single one of the hundreds of reviews with less than four stars) but jeans at that price are not something that most of us can purchase at leisure. That's what makes HALE on Amazon so exciting. Same designer, but the priciest pair of jeans runs you $40, and most are closer to $25. AND you get free two day Prime shipping.
I ordered three different pairs in a variety of sizes so that I could do a thorough review for the blog, and I've had them for about two weeks now. I've washed my denim shorts (my favorite piece so far) three times, and they come out of the wash feeling just like what you would expect from designer denim. They're soft, broken in, but in no way losing their shape or wearing out. They have quickly become my favorite pair of jean shorts, and this is coming from a girl with a lot of jean shorts! I will note that everything seems to run about one size small (I found this to be true in all three pairs I now own and love), and one of the pairs ran really long. They have frayed hems anyways so I will probably end up just cutting them shorter, but they are longer than they look on the model. I've linked the three pairs I've bought here here and here, and here are some shots of two of them:
(You can kind of see here where I cuffed them funny because they're so long)
You HAVE to try those shorts for $25. Seriously, they're fantastic. Sizes and styles are a little bit limited in everything right now (I think things have been selling out), but I hope you can find a pair to test out because I am 100% sure you will be so impressed with the quality. I just ordered the denim skirt. But DON'T FORGET to size up one size!!
My white booties and leopard top are both sold out, but I linked similar ones and everything else I am wearing here, along with all of my HALE picks:
FYI- These are commissioned links but this post is in no way sponsored by HALE, AG, Amazon or otherwise. I just thought these jeans were a really cool find and wanted to share them with you all! Thanks for reading.
